Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra fails to break into DxOMark's top 10 global ranking for display performance with a score that ties with the much cheaper Mi 11
DxOMark has awarded the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra with 87 points for its display performance, placing the premium smartphone outside of the top 10 global ranking. The Mi 11 Ultra lies tied for 12th place with the regular Mi 11, the Vivo X51 5G, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, and the Apple iPhone 12 Pro. The test site noted that the Mi 11 Ultra had produced an overall performance that was at least a distinct step-up from that of its same-brand predecessor.
Considering the high price of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, which DxOMark puts at US$1,200, it seems fair to say more could have been expected from the device. The similar-priced Galaxy S21 Ultra managed a score of 91 points for its display (both Snapdragon and Exynos variants were awarded the same score), while the much cheaper OnePlus 8T (listed at US$599) also produced a better score of 89 points. While the Mi 11 Ultra was praised for its accurate color reproduction and artifact management, its readability and touch response let it down.
According to the review site’s examples and testing, the Mi 11 Ultra didn’t quite offer the amount of brightness required for a high score in the readability section. Dark parts of the screen were difficult to make out, with viewing HDR10 content being singled out as particularly troublesome. On top of this, the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra scored poorly in the touch accuracy test, picking up just 62 points compared to the section leader OnePlus 9 Pro on 83 points. At least the Mi 11 Ultra scraped into 10th position for the display ranking that only includes ultra-premium devices and is still the king of the camera chart.
